Mirror Moves is the fourth studio album by the English rock band The Psychedelic Furs, recorded and released in 1984. Drummer Vince Ely had left the group, leaving Richard Butler and Tim Butler along with guitarist John Ashton to carry on. For this project, producer Keith Forsey handled the drumming. The album included the dance hit "Heartbeat" and the chart hits "Heaven" and "The Ghost in You". Despite substantial success internationally, "Heaven" was not released as a single in America. Instead, another track from the album, "Here Come Cowboys", was released and the video for it received some airplay on the then, very new and popular MTV network.

Despite strong sales and warm reviews, it was another three years before the band released their next studio album.
